UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or 2, UCD School of Computer Science, Temporary (ending 30 April 2022)

Applications are invited for a temporary post of a UCD Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or 2 within UCD School of Computer Science

This role a postdoctoral research fellow position will work on the Precise4Q project, in the area of Machine Learning for Health. The Precise4Q project is funded by the European Commission, and is an international collaboration between 12 academic and industry partners across Europe. The project focuses on the treatment of stroke, and will create the Digital Stroke Patient Platform. This platform will enable – for the first time – personalised stroke treatment which addresses an individual's needs in four stages of the stroke lifecycle: prevention, acute treatment, rehabilitation, and reintegration into society.

The researcher will be based in the SFI Insight Centre for Data Analytics and the UCD school of computer science. Within the Precise4Q project UCD is focused on building the predictive data-driven models that underpin the platform. The development of these models will use machine learning/deep learning techniques. Innovative aspects of this research will include the development of hybrid models and the development of models capable of predictive multiple interrelated targets.

The researcher will conduct a specific programme of research and scholarship under the leadership of the Principal Investigator. This includes: (i) a model that supports healthcare professionals to design the daily rehabilitation plans so as to maximize the patient's cognitive and functional status on the final day of discharge; (ii) a model that can predict long-term reintegration and well-being profiles for individual patients post-rehabilitation. This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.
